Support and Stabilization

Providing in-home services designed to promote self-sufficiency

Family Alliance

Family Alliance is a Family Stabilization Team which consists of licensed clinicians and case managers who work with families that are currently involved with the Department of Children and Families. The team works collaboratively with families who are intact and those with a goal of reunification to stabilize, strengthen, and build relationships with community providers, family, peers, and school. Our clinician and case manager conduct home visits up to three times a week, to provide the tools for families to stabilize and work towards their goals and treatment plans.

Referral process

Referrals are only received from The Department of Children and Families/ Family Networks. A social worker can make a referral to the Family Alliance Program on behalf of a family with an open DCF case.

In-person visits are held in the home and community. We also offer hybrid and virtual visits over zoom or other platforms.

Hours of Services

Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Hours do vary based on the needs of families. The team is available by phone to families after hours and weekends if there is an emergency.

Duration of service

The service is designed to be 90 days. Families may receive an extension if the outlined goals of the service have not been met and approval has been received from DCF/Family Networks.

December 13, 2022

On December 13th and December 15th our holiday gift cards are distributed at both our Lynn and Chelsea service locations. LifeScene Participant families will be invited to collect their gift cards in person for their family household size, while also having the opportunity to listen to holiday music, eat popcorn, drink hot cocoa or apple cider and drop off letters to Santa. The Santa letter drop off is expected to occur on the side of LifeScene’s main building’s green area. The Chelsea LifeScene location will use the parking lot and office space for the event.
